This report is a special analysis that is republished from the "Condition of Education 2004" in a booklet form. The analysis examines changes undergraduate student aid between 1989-90 and 1999-2000, focusing on dependent students who were enrolled full time for the full academic year. This analysis examines changes in student financing of undergraduate education between 1989?90 and 1999?2000, focusing on students who enrolled full time for the full academic year and who were considered financially dependent on their parents for financial aid purposes. It briefly describes the increases in tuition and fees, major types and sources of financial aid available to undergraduates, data and definitions used, and where students enrolled. It then shows what prices they faced, how much they and their families were expected to pay from their own resources, and what types and amounts of financial aid they received. The analysis presents the price of going to college in three ways: (1) the total price (tuition and fees plus books and living expenses); (2) the net price after taking grants into account; and (3) the net price after both grants and loans are considered.
